Why Vote? Let Me Count the Reasons
One of the things that has stuck me this election is that we are really lucky as women to have gotten the right to vote. Women like Abigail Adams lobbied her husband hard to grant women the right to vote at the inception of our country, and the effort began in earnest before the Civil War. It took less than a decade after that to pass an amendment, but there seems to still be a lot of animosity about it even today, almost 100 years later. Why? Because we don't vote like men, and there are a lot of angry men who want things to be the way they used to be, and they see women as standing between them and that dream. So please, let's use our voice at the ballot box and hope that we can make a tiny step forward after a lot of horrible things were tweeted about us and our kind.
